    Think of what TFTM toys would be like if they were action masters, the small sense of scale was completely obliterated, and the designs were more cartoon like.

    That = Robot Replicas.

    Actually they seem to be articulated like Marvel legends I think. They look pretty kool, except I do not like Barricades wheel blade.

    They're nothing like Marvel Legends. It's very rudimentary articulation, and they use the Revoltech style joints. They don't look as good in person.

    Revoltech is great, but these look so much more cheaply made and sculpted. However, I will feel much better getting them because they won't be $25 a piece. That's why I only have Revoltech Prime right now. As for these, I'm probably only getting Frenzy and maybe Prime.

    For $10 I will purchase EVERY one of these. Every one.



    I heart Revoltech.

    Me too!

    I wont get all probably, but I'll definitely get Barricade and Frenzy. I wish they'd make a Screamer.

    I have Replicas Barricade, and he's alright, but not great. The joints aren't as well implemented as Revoltech, and his kibble gets in the way of his joint movement.

    But he does look sooooo cool next to the Deluxe, Cyber Slammer and Legends Barricade. When the FAB comes out I may get him too, just to keep the little Barricade thing going on.

    yeah they are very movie accurate and pretty posable as well. Out of the three that are out right now (bb, megatron, barricade) I think that BB is definately the winner of the set. The others seem like somethings off on them

    So far Frenzy's the only one that I'm interested in at all... I may pick up the others if I start feeling an urge for movie accurate figures... but I doubt that will happen.

    I'll probably only end up with RR Frenzy...since I don't like the way Barricade looks in the pics I have seen, and the others..I dunno.
